Rafael revealed that the publishers' rights policy would be neither sustainable nor effective.

Rafael continued: If the Publishers' Rights Act is implemented, Meta admitted that he would have to make a difficult decision, namely to limit the amount of content published on Facebookthe amount of news on Facebook is therefore very limited.

This policy has been implemented in Canada.

“This will impact how news is displayed on Facebook, especially for Indonesian customers. We do the same thing in Canada. “We really don’t want to get to that phase,” Rafael said.

Meta therefore asks the Secretary of State to consider this issue in order to find a solution that benefits all parties.

For information, in Canada, Meta has started removing news content on Facebook and Instagram, following the implementation of a law that requires technology companies to negotiate payments to news agencies.

Technology companies are charged because they are seen as involved in the distribution of content produced by news publishers. This step means that Facebook and Instagram users can no longer access news.
